About the Lab

The Mariana Mateos Lab has a broad interest in evolutionary ecology and evolutionary genetics.  Our main focus is on understanding the evolution of insect-bacteria associations, particularly those involving heritable endosymbionts. We also have a strong interest in phylogenetics and historical biogeography of diverse organisms, particularly from western Mexico.
